I am so appreciative of the outstanding turnout from County Schools staff who attended one or both of my annual State of Education Addresses, which were held in San Bernardino and Victorville in September. It was wonderful to highlight the terrific work being done by our office to support the more than 406,000 students who attend public schools in our county. Thanks to all for your continued dedication and commitment to our efforts to help transform lives through education.

What do people call you? I go by my nickname.
What do you like to do away from work? Does binge watching Netflix count as a hobby? I'm a part-time realtor, which is like a hobby for me, and I'm thinking about dancing flamenco again.
